Mapua E

Hey everyone, look what I found.  A YouTube video of the waiata we are practicing at the moment.

They sing Tumatauenga whereas we sing Mapua because that is our place, our people.

This is what we sing on our marae here at Waiouru Army Camp. We are Ngati Tumatauenga, the people of the war god. And the Youtube clip shows them performing it while peacekeeping in Bosnia in 1995.But you should insert the name of your group here, or sing Te Iwi E ! E karanga e te iwi e.
Boys, can you get to this standard? Of course you can :  )
